I'm still playing around with colors and levels---as you can see in the first attachment (demo_array). Also, I've attached some mock-ups of a

discussion. (Somewhat identifiable with scikits.image and pronounceable;
not sure if I like the way it looks in print, though.)
I just read the code you wrote to do this; very cool! How did you determine the coefficients for the SciPy spline?
I actually did that manually; i.e. I kind of knew where I wanted the anchor points and approximated the angles, then adjusted from there. The smarter thing to do would've been to trace it with a drawing program and then export the Bezier points, but I didn't know a good way of doing it.
Also, which font did you use for the logos you made? If you have an
SVG file, maybe also include that in the archive.
In the samples I sent, I used Helvetica Neue Light. Unfortunately, I drew those up with Keynote---just because it was easier for me---so I don't have an SVG file (Keynote and Preview don't have SVG export options). Ideally, I would've just drawn the text in Matplotlib, but at the time, I didn't feel like manually manipulating the text coordinates.
I'm thinking of
adding all of this into the main repo. In fact, we should probably use this as a tutorial example.
The snake logo + text as it appears on the Lena example will do perfectly for the webpage.
I hope a PDF is OK. If not, I can work on a fully Matplotlib solution, but it'll have to wait until I have some free time.
